Late last year Sheriff Rene Rivera hired three new deputies who have been tasked with targeting criminals in Highland Meadows, Meadow Lake and El Cerro Mission, and Jarales and Rio Communities.
"Those three officers are still out there patrolling, but they are also making contact with the individuals, with the people out there, to gain their trust," Rivera said, adding, "We're trying to be proactive, not reactive."
Valencia County Sheriff Rene Rivera this week touted falling crime rates throughout the county that he says is a result of having newly hired deputies more active throughout the county.
In late October, Rivera hired three new deputies.
"The burglaries and so on have dropped quite a bit," he said. "It's working really good."
As a part of Rivera's plan for better law enforcement in the county, the deputies have been placed full-time in the Meadow Lake and El Cerro Mission areas, the Rio Communities and Jarales areas, and in Highland Meadows. The deputies have spent their first month and a half getting acquainted with residents.
"They're getting to know the community really good," Rivera said.
He said his plan has produced positive results. While he hasn't made the hard numbers public yet, he said he'll soon be presenting that information to the county commission.
"I will be giving the commission what's been happening out there - how the crime has been dropping since I placed those deputies out there," he said.
Sheriff Rene Rivera said last night that he plans to hire three new deputies, placing them in Rio Communities, El Cerro Mission and Jarales.
"The commission gave me permission to hire three more deputies," he said to applause at a Rio Communities Association meeting.
While Rivera has been gradually increasing the size of his police force since he started as sheriff three years ago, he's been working to secure these three new deputies, and another for Highland Meadows, since at least March, when he asked the county commission to support hiring more deputies.
He will be introducing the deputies to each community shortly after they're hired during the next month.
"I want to make sure you all get to know this deputy on a first name basis," he told his Rio Communities audience, saying the Rio Communities deputy will be stationed in the area by early November.
Rivera said he's tried to focus on building up his base of deputies for years. When he began working as sheriff, the department had only 13 deputies.
"It was very hard to run from El Cerro Mission to Rio Communities," he said.
He said the department now has 37 deputies.
"With the help of the commissioners, we've been able to beef up the number of deputies here," he said.
He pointed out he still doesn't have enough. The national standard is one deputy for every 1,000 people. With Valencia County around 100,000 residents, he should have around 100 deputies.
"Everything's growing except the sheriff's department," he said, adding, "Money is tight right now, therefore we can't do it.

Some have written off current Democratic Sheriff Rene Rivera as weakened from seemingly high crime (if you listen to TV news) and that dust up from placing his name on patrol cars.
